This month update your scent while paying it forward with Hanae Mori’s Edu de Collection No. 8 ($99), the final fragrance in the series. The scent is a balanced mix between floral and spice and everything nice. It creates a sultry mix of Japanese Cherry Blossoms with Sicilian oranges, and plum nectar. The spice notes are derived from Indonesian patchouli and Australian sandalwood. This worldly fragrance gives back because a portion of the proceeds goes to the National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund.

This time is does not embody a specific neighborhood, but the fantasy that is New York City, center of the universe. Bond No. 9 has released this fragrance to celebrate 10 years of olfactory satisfaction. Encompassing the best of New York, there is rose which is the state’s flower, which is the first scent to hit your senses. The rose is then balanced with sweet honey, patchouli, and an ambery mush. Even the bottle blends the diversity and range of New York. The bright magenta blends many colors for its vibrancy and passion, the spirit of New York.
